Some articles on pointers, pointer, pointer arithmetic:
... Based variables and pointers are key to such programs ... Any BASED declaration can be used with a pointer into the storage to access the storage - inherently unsafe and machine dependent ... this usage has become important for "pointer arithmetic" (typically adding a certain amount to a known address) ...
... In C and C++ pointers are variables that store addresses and can be null ... Each pointer has a type it points to, but one can freely cast between pointer types (but not between a function pointer and non-function pointer type) ... A special pointer type called the “void pointer” allows pointing to any (non-function) variable type, but is limited by the fact that it cannot be dereferenced directly ...
Famous quotes containing the words arithmetic and/or pointer:
“O! O! another stroke! that makes the third.
He stabs me to the heart against my wish.
If that be so, thy state of health is poor;
But thine arithmetic is quite correct.”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
“The hardiest skeptic who has seen a horse broken, a pointer trained, or has visited a menagerie or the exhibition of the Industrious Fleas, will not deny the validity of education. A boy, says Plato, is the most vicious of all beasts; and in the same spirit the old English poet Gascoigne says, A boy is better unborn than untaught.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
